Hamilton Bulldogs Game Thread: Bulldogs @ Admirals

After their best stretch of the season, the Bulldogs looks to continue upping the ante.

The Hamilton Bulldogs have won 3 of their last 4 games, and for the first time this season they are scoring consistently.

Partly this is a regression to the mean after some terrible luck, but the timing is very curious as it comes with AHL veterans Darryl Boyce and Aaron Palushaj out of the lineup. Boyce was on a 25 game professional tryout which has now concluded, and Palushaj is out 4-6 weeks with an injury sustained or aggravated in practice.

The youngsters seem to be adjusting to the speed of the AHL game, and the scoring has followed. The Bulldogs now travel to Milwaukee to take on the Admirals [11-11-2-1], the AHL subsidiary of the Nashville Predators. Like the Bulldogs, the Admirals seem to have no stars in the lineup, but the guys to watch will be Austin Watson and Gabriel Bourque, as well as Ryan Ellis if he plays.
